Firefox v55.0.2 Released
Released: Aug 16 2017


Today's release brings innovative functionality, improvements to core browser performance, and more proof that we’re committed to making Firefox better than ever. New features include support for WebVR, making Firefox the first Windows desktop browser to support VR experiences. Performance changes include significantly faster startup times when restoring lots of tabs and settings that let users take greater control of our new multi-process architecture. We’ve also upgraded the address bar to make finding what you want easier, with search suggestions and the integration of our one-click search feature, and safer, by prioritizing the secure - https - version of sites when possible.

• Fix a regression with the popup menu (Bug 1388682)
• Fix performance regressions with WebExtension (Bugs 1386937 & 1389381)
• Fix an issue with new installation notification for sideload add-ons (Bug 1372448)
• Fix a potential issue when the username had some specific characters in the path (Bug 1388584)
